"Digging" explores the connections between music and literature from a fresh, engaging perspective, drawing on both classics and lesser-known writers and musicians.
It is a project designed to stimulate the listener as much as the creator, a radio experiment fusing musical experience with a literary stimulus. Basing itself on links and associations drawn from themes, words, tone and mood, the aim is to provide an entertaining hour of musical and literary bonds.
Both music and literature are about feelings; they are about places, experiences, ideas and sensations. They can change one's state of mind and plunge the reader or listener into all sorts of moods. "Digging" hopes to appeal to the listener's imagination.
"Music always sort of sharpened me up, and made me feel like old Bog himself, ready to make with the old donner and blitzen and have vecks and ptitsas creeching away in my haha power" - A Clockwork Orange
